A BUDDING restaurant owner has had a frying start as the new boss of a fish and chip shop.
Jun Liu is now the proud owner of Lee-On-Solent Fish and Chippy on Lee-on-the-Solent’s seafront.
The restaurant has been a big part of the local community for more than 20 years, with Mr Liu and his family now managing and running it.
The takeover has created one full-time job and secured the roles of the five employees who already worked at the takeaway.
Jun Liu bought the chippy with a six-figure finance package from HSBC.
He said: It has always been a dream of mine to own my own hospitality business and HSBC UK has enabled me to do this.
‘This has been an excellent opportunity to grow my business portfolio and my relationship manager at HSBC UK, Rico Lee, made the process incredibly smooth.’
Jane Fancy, HSBC UK area director, added: ‘We’re delighted to have supported Jun and his family in purchasing their first business premises.
‘Their hard work and dedication to the hospitality industry has paid off and we look forward to seeing their businesses continue to grow.’
